    Lifes journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well-preserved body, but to skid in sideways totally worn out, shouting: holy s.h.i.t what a ride!

    ^ looks a bad omen.

    what's the chances he won't make it too!
    storms,no sun,battery issues and possibly too much sleep as it seems very little would be desirable.

    Good technical article here > Here's How You Fly a Massive, Delicate Solar Plane Across the Country | WIRED

    10 knots is slow for a cruising yacht but 25 knots for an aircraft ... you wouldn't want to run into a rain squall.

    The next entry in the "lost at an unknown location" sheet. Re something odd about the picture. Either you are referring to the guard missing ahead or the plane appears to be missing the prop, but only because it is turned to horizontal.

    The headless man is actually bending over ... But you have to look closely to see it.
